Hilarious Family
And Kid Photos

Why is it that we only see the good family photos? Every mom knows that for each decent photograph of her kids, there were at least a dozen others that didn't make the cut for some reason or another! We've pulled together some of the best reject photos of families, babies and kids for this hilarious feature on family photo fails.

Even rock stars get the blues

Family Photo Fail - CostelloParents, Kelly and Lucas, and kiddo, Costello

Child photographer Sarah Vasquez of Hope and Memory Photography sees her fair share of family photo fails — and not because she isn't good at her job. It's because her clients are, well, kids! Sarah shares about this particular photo, which she calls her all-time favorite outtake, "This wonderful family had hired me to do a family-concept session for them as a rock band in the woods and their kids were totally not cooperating." As Sarah knew was best, they decided to kick things down a notch and let the kids relax while focusing on some shots of the parents for a while. That's when, Costello gave her the opportunity to take this photograph. "Costello came up and genuinely made this face, because he wanted attention and was just really done with everything," Sarah recalls. And, a good reminder from a photographer who is also a mom that shots like these — even ones that we might consider to be "fails" amongst the rest — are the ones we cherish most!

Painfully boring and vapid.

while looking at the photos i figured i would be the only one who thought they were not the least bit funny. i am happy to see others don't enjoy brats or their goofy parents.

I agree with Yabow...nothing "hilarious" at all about these photos. Especially the "flipping the bird"...What am I missing here? If it's photo shopped, why bother? Pathetic.

Hilarious? I think someone may have redefined the term. These photos were anything but hilarious, but I guess when the Yahoo staffers dug through their personal photographs they must have thought these were very funny. Neither of the photos of cute little Ireland and her daddy even began to elicit a chortle.

@John, I do. It's a reminder of why I dislike the 'today' American bratty offspring of some really stupid Americans. Parents: don't bring your monsters to Europe. We don't like them unless you've trained them to behave, which you probably haven't done because you think they're cute... spare the civilized world - boorish families are disliked worldwide, and it seems America has a lock on boors.
